Application Infrastructure for Back-End Application Integration Projects 4
We think our focus on SMBs and the ecosystems of SAP, Oracle's JD Edwards World and IBM's System i has certainly helped us both in terms of vision and market reach, commented Avigdor Luttinger, Magic Softwares VP of Corporate Strategy.
David Assia, Chairman and acting CEO of Magic Software, added, "We believe the positioning of Magic Software by a leading technology analyst, such as Gartner, in the visionaries quadrant of all the four Gartner Quadrants on Application Infrastructure, confirms the success of our efforts to position Magic as a technology leader for todays business application development and integration projects, in particular in our target ecosystems.
About the Magic Quadrant
The Magic Quadrants are copyrighted 2007 by Gartner, Inc. and are reused with permission. The Magic Quadrant is a graphical representation of a marketplace at, and for, a specific time period. It depicts Gartner's analysis of how certain vendors measure against criteria for that marketplace, as defined by Gartner. Gartner does not endorse any vendor, product or service depicted in the Magic Quadrant, and does not advise technology users to select only those vendors placed in the "Leaders" quadrant. The Magic Quadrant is intended solely as a research tool, and is not meant to be a specific guide to action.

According to Gartner, the visionaries in this market have exhibited vision across a range of application infrastructure capabilities not necessarily with respect to all capabilities, but many of them. (Magic Quadrant for Application Infrastructure, 2Q07)
